Investigating Autumn Circulation and Transport in the western Arctic Ocean

Hometown: Alexandria, Virginia

Department: Interdisciplinary Studies 

Advisor: Donglai Gong

My honors research will aim to elucidate the mechanisms by which autumn-season wind variations drive oceanic circulation in the Arctic Ocean, particularly in flows through Barrow Canyon, a key flow pathway. I will clarify and quantify the role of cyclonic (whirlpool-like) circulation features in regulating the path and magnitude of Pacific Ocean water transported through Barrow Canyon into the Arctic Basin in the fall months.
